Sunday, 6th of December 2020—Looking festive in a red and green ensemble, the Duchess of Cambridge boarded the Royal Train at London’s Euston Station.
Kate’s joining William on a mini-tour of Great Britain to thank individuals and organisations who went above and beyond during the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple plan to visit several locations across England, Wales and Scotland on Monday (7th Dec) and Tuesday (8th Dec). The exact details remain under embargo in line with government guidance, as a precaution to ensure the public do not gather in crowds.
We do know the tour will end with a photo opportunity with the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall—the first time all five royals will have been pictured together this year.
We do have a little bit of information about the tour from a press release. We know the royal pair will hear about the experiences, sacrifices and inspiring work from a mix of people, including “frontline workers, volunteers, care home staff, teachers, schoolchildren and young people”.
Many of the engagements undertaken by Their Royal Highnesses will celebrate community spirit and demonstrate the impact of the public’s generosity this year, by showcasing organisations and initiatives that have been supported by community relief funds, including NHS Charities Together.
Their Royal Highnesses’ visits will also showcase the UK’s arts, heritage and live performance sector, which has been supported throughout the pandemic by the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund. There will be a number of festive performances across the three days by local artists, celebrating inspiring work of the organisations and projects the Duke and Duchess are visiting.Kensington Palace
Before departing the station, William and Kate thanked Transport for London workers and enjoyed Shakin Stevens perform “Merry Christmas Everyone”.
Kate’s red and green outfit is a nod to the festive season. Her olive-green military-style coat is by Alexander McQueen. It’s a bespoke piece.
She first wore the piece during a visit to Bradford in January 2020.
If you’d been following Kate’s style for a while, her red and green tartan scarf should look familiar. It’s the Maple Leaf Tartan Scarf by York Scarves.
Woven in a deep classic twill weave from 100% pure cotton these large Pashmina scarves have a depth and softness to the fabric which is comfortable and looks just great.York Scarves
The Duchess first wore the piece in 2016 during the Canada Tour.
You can purchase the scarf for £14.95 at ETSY.com.
Kate carried her relatively new Grace Han ‘Love Letter’ bag (£1,595). It’s a small black calfskin leather handbag with an envelope closure.
The Duchess first carried to launch the community exhibition for her Hold Still project in October. It’s still available to buy at gracehan.shop.
Kate’s mask is from Amaia Kids.
